The funeral was conducted at

remains were laid to rest in the
Ne /.perec cemetery.
Mr. and Mrs. Hangs and their
four children came to this place to
spend the winter with her folks,
and, if they found the country to
their liking it was their plan to
locate here permanently.
This extreme misfortune falls
heavily upon them, and our peo
ple feel deep sympathy for the
family in it* distress.
MLs Helma Johnson was born
in Massachusetts June 21, 1901,
and came to make her home with
Airs. Looney, of the Mohler sec

The following interesting letter
Roy Hollen Writes.
from Hoy Hollen, Co. D, 12th
I*. S. Infantry, army supply base^
Norfolk, Va., to Mr. and Mrs.
Joe Dunham of this vicinity, was
received Monday:
Army .Supply Hase,
Dee. 2.
Dear Friends;
After so long a delay I will try
and write to you again. Since
last wrote J have moved across
the continent. In spite of the
crowded conditions of troop
trains 1 enjoyed the trip. We left
Camp Fremont on Tuesday after
noon and traveled through beaut
iful country in t'alifornia. Hut
when 1 awoke the next morning
there was sure a great change in
scenery—nothing hut sand and
sagebrush as far as the eye could
see. So, it was. nearly all the
way thru eastern California and
most parts of Arizona. Once in
a while we would come to some
town, which was always welcomed
as it was a change from the sage
brush. Some parts of Arizona
and New Mexico, looked like the
land was fairly good for grazing.
This part of the country contains
mostly greasers. They live in
long, narrow, flat roofed, adobe
huts, that are not great for looks.
When we entered Colorado, we
came hack into God's country
again. There were cultivated
farms, very well improved, con
sidering the length of time the
country has been settled. As we
got farther east, thru Kansas and
Missouri the country' became more
improved with fine ranch hontes
and all out buildings up to date.
The Missouri bottom land looked
as wood as Nezperee prairie to we.
We crossed both ibe Missouri and
Mismss'- 'U ; had several hours
j layover at Kansas City and all
up to the big V M, C. A-,
land enjoyed a fine- shower bath
j and plunge in the swimming pool
led from < 'ailfornia to
on the Santa Fe.
